Tomorrow marks my husband’s 40th birthday! This photo of him is one of my favorites because it is so very telling about the kind of person he is! Fun-loving, compassionate, self-less, loves his kids, and fashionable (thanks to me)! Each special occasion, I make it an opportunity to integrate something new into his wardrobe. This past Christmas he received a bevy of bowties in various colors and patterns. As I was planning his next gift, I came across Atlanta’s menswear boutique Res Ipsa. They’ve got some pretty intriguing pieces including these rug loafers. Yes, you heard it right. Rug loafers.
“A more interesting question is ‘What color shoes should I wear?’ Dullsville is a place where they only wear black and brown shoes.” — Glenn O’Brien, The GQ Guide to Men’s Shoes, April 2012.
A wool dopp kit, aka grooming kit or toiletries bag.
They also sell a “hue-tiful” selection of neckties and bowties!
The same woman who’d buy a rug pillow for a room would be the same woman who’d would buy her man a pair of hand-crafted Turkish rug loafers.
I just love it when fashion and interior design intersect! Irresistible!
Truth be told, the reason why Chris will always be on trend is not because of my flawless sense of style, it’s because being a kind, respectable, God-fearing and loving person never goes out of style.
Happy 40th Birthday Babe!
